Good service. ...on time
The bus which I booked was cancelled without any prior information. I had to book another bus on the spot in the departure time. You will get terrified at the last minute of travel if you trust this travels; that too in a strange place with unknown language.
The bus fare was the costliest in all the available Non AC semi sleeper buses. But still few seats were the push back was not working. Ultimately Id felt like traveling in an ordinary bus, rather than in semi sleeper bus.
I am planning to return to Cochin on 10/5/15. will you be last stop at M G Ro. Last time I travel to Madurai to Cochin on 15/4/15 operators said before boarding the last stop would be at M G Road. But they dropped everybody at Vytilla Jn.
